that the nominal voltage and type of supply on the
rating plate match that of the supply where the
appliance is to be installed. The fuse rating is also
to be found on the rating plate.

connect up your dishwasher, please read the
"Installation" section. Multiway plugs / connectors
and extension cables must not be used. This
could constitute a safety hazard.

dangerous for children. Risk of suffocation! Keep
packaging away from children.
Detergents can cause burns to the eyes, mouth,

observe the manufacturer's safety instructions for
